    I've just finished year 13 and I'm not expecting a good result in biology as I was poorly prepared for the exams. I'm exploring my options of retaking this qualification during a gap year. However, I'm on the AQA specification which has now switched to the newer spec so I was part of the last year of these exams. Does anybody know if AQA will be writing the A2 resit papers as the subject has now finished?

    Also, I'm not sure how resits in 'year 14' work. Would I be able to carry through my coursework components with the resit grades?

    Thanks in advance.

    All examiners are offering resits for all subjects that have been replaced with new specifications. You will be able to carry forward the results of any units including practical/coursework units and just sit the specific unit exams you need to improve. If you need to do it, ask about entering for them as a private candidate at your existing school/college. As there will be no students taking the exams for the first time, it may be harder than usual to find a centre to take them.

    All units will be set by the examiners. Finding somewhere willing to accept you for them as a private candidate may take a bit of work.
